Upper West Side! Competitively priced. Close to Central Park; a beautiful, old, red sandstone building. The rooms in the back are deliciously quiet. Good blackout curtains. Clean. Suites are spacious with dry bar containing a mini fridge & a coffee machine. On this visit the bedroom TV worked well; the living room TV wouldn't change channels & the staff seemed... More

I am just a week back from New York City and my first stay at The Lucerne. WOW! What an unexpected jewel of a hotel. I typically stay in Times Squares at the Doubletree Suites and on my last visit stayed at the Conrad Hilton in lower Manhattan. Both are good hotels, with the Conrad offering a higher end of... More

This is our first time staying in the Upper West Side. The Lucerne Hotel was very nice. The front door staff welcomed us and opened the doors each time we entered or left. I had requested a quiet room, and got it! This hotel is close to so many restaurants, and close to the Museum of Natural History. It is... More

Beautiful stay. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms, and steps from great restaurants. Typically stay at Ritz or Fairmont Hotels. Less grandeur, but almost equal comfort and service. The only real con is that the rooms have the individual heating and cooling units. Ours worked well and was very quiet. The room and bath were well appointed. Beds were very... More

We stayed in this hotel as it was close to a wedding we were attending. However, if we come back to NYC, this will definitely be a top consideration. It's 2 blocks from Central Market, Museum of natural history and a lot of great restaurants within walking distance. We stayed on the top floor which I'm so thankful because it... More

Quiet, well maintained boutique hotel with an efficient and friendly staff. Our first visit here worked well as our daughter lives in the upper west side. Walking distance to innumerable restaurants, shopping, central park and museums. Rates are better at certain times of year but still reasonable by New York standards. We will be back.

The Hotel Lucerne is in a great spot - on the corner of 79th and Amsterdam Avenue, not far from the 79th St subway station. Lovely area, plenty of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops nearby (we enjoyed a fair few visits to Zabar's, which isn't far away - love that place!). The hotel itself has a welcoming, if quite small,... More

I liked this hotel and my room. The one imperfection was the constant drip or tap sound in the wall . The front desk said the sound was coming from pipes in the wall. They suggested that on my next visit to ask for a room not in the 15 line. My room number ended in 15. Great location. And... More
